comments: This is a particularly hefty one as the bottom in particular is a little thicker than it needs to be and the rim is deliberately thick because I liked the way it looked when I had turned it down that far.
The osage orange in view 6, when view across view 7, looks bright yellow but when viewed across view 4 it is quite dark. That's common for osage orange cut at an angle as this is, and it makes for an interesting look.
